Witnesses: Towson Incident a ‘Mob Scene’

Jeff Hager, ABC News, September 24, 2012

Captured on camera—some tense moments as police clash with people filling the streets of Towson’s business district late Saturday.

“It was just a mob scene basically . . .  something I’ve never seen before in my life,” said Zach Scarbath, who had just gotten off work, “(There were) some people out in the streets everywhere, cops on top of cars with bullhorns (and) fights left and right and I think around two they brought out the dogs and started pepper spraying people and everything.”

Police say the initial call came in from Recher Theatre about 11:30pm after a fraternity-sponsored event drew a capacity crowd and more.

The theatre’s owner says he closed the doors after admitting 630 people, but as many as four times that number remained out on the street.

“We had four people who were arrested for simple disorderly conduct or for refusing to follow the lawful orders by the officers to leave,” said Baltimore County Police Cpl. Cathy Batton, We also had three individuals that were arrested for assaults on law enforcement.  Three officers received non-life threatening injuries during the incident.”

Cpl. Batton says near 1:00am, the violence escalated when someone shot a 20-year old a short distance away.

    Heh, heh…..true to form…they never let us down, do they? Bantu’s on the march.

    Oh good, at first I thought this had something to do with Jared Taylor’s appearance there. Now I see this is an unrelated incident (although perhaps it is more related than many would like to think). It must have killed that news station’s soul to have to call those three thugs in custody “young men” instead of their much preferred term, “yoofs.”

    As spoken in the patois of Towson U., “I gots a bad hambonition ’bout dis.” 

  • I just don’t get it. The trained police canines were required to have leashes, and we have Leash Laws specifically because a certain mammal has the propensity for aggression and unpredictability. Black people, however, get to roam freely, raping, robbing and pillaging. I smell some racism.

     “…fraternity-sponsored event drew a capacity crowd and more.”

    I wonder what kind of event this was?  Other that a chip out that is.

    Gosh Beav – and here I thought these were going to be members of the White Student Union.

    I was crushed – CRUSHED, I tell you, when I saw the pictures of the members of Towson’s upstanding fraternity, Phi Glocka Tenna.

    I honestly cant believe this. The last article I read was all “Love is Louder”, Whites are the source of all evil etc. How are the white libs going to spin this, their pets are uncontrollable.

    And the multicultural utopia continues to implode.

    These ARE the last days of a deteriorating empire. 

    And Obama is mandating that blacks MUST NOT be disciplined any more than any other race in schools, and the level of infractions has to be greater than past standards of behavior.

    The above video is a more docile example of what that policy will bring to society in the very near future.  It will get far worse. 

    The black problem in this country is worse than what exists in the worst parts of Africa.

    Seen a lot of good shows at the Recher. Other than a rather brutal mosh pit at a Slayer concert a few years back, I’ve never seen any kind of trouble out there. Of course the crowds were overwhelmingly White, but even when walking through town afterward late at night to get to your car there was never a sense of danger. It’s been a while, but I’m fairly sure the rabble had to be imported.

       What, a brutal mosh pit at a Slayer concert????? No way!!!  lol………….

    I think someone at AMREN screwed up.  This has nothing to do with anything.  There are riots in Baltimore/Towson all the time. 

  • SarahConnor

    Its good AmR posted this. The video has been taken down. Thumbs up for the White Student Union!

  • IanJMacDonald

    Who let the dogs out?

  • Tom in Miami

    I missed the part about what the “event” was that precipitated this riot.  Had nothing to do with AmRen or the White Student Union?

    • youhavetherighttoremainsilent

       a black fraternity rented a local hall. 3000 other blks showed up and flooded the area. as usual one person shot 6 blks arrested animalistic vile behavior takes place, shops forced to close early cops need dogs and peper spray as well as tazers etc all covered up by cops and media took me 4 days to find out it was all blks causing the problem. buy more ammo get more guns go to the range more, practice taking care of your weapons cleaning them getting better at shooting skills etc because very soon you will need them.

    My college was one and had about 2% Bantus. Of course, it was an engineering school and it was many decades ago.

    Maybe this little preview will open up some White minds at Jareds speech.
